COMPETITION: Guess the origin of each letter of this Irish Alphabet and win a screen printed poster.
I have posted a lot of my own fonts here over the years, but this is something different. Inspired by @studiorashkov, who did a wonderful ABC of letters from the city of Rotterdam, I created this Irish Alphabet. The letters were not designed by me, I merely gathered them from the corners of the internet and as a collection they celebrate the wealth of Irish design. Each letter represents an Irish organisation, company or place in the country. Mostly it is the first letter of their name, but in a few cases it is another notable letter from their identity. Find the names of the Irish organisations, companies and places represented by each letter of this alphabet. The alphabet will be screen printed as an A3 poster and the first person to guess and email me all letters correctly (or the person with most correct answers by the end of Sunday 12 July) will receive a copy of the poster in the post. The winner will be announced on Monday 13 July.
S is for Soon is my submission to Creatives Against Covid 19, a campaign calling on the creative industry to design and donate inspiring posters of hope, optimism and resilience on the theme of Soon. Social isolation during the coronavirus pandemic is more dangerous for women and children living in the reality of abusive relationships. My poster and more than 1000 others can now be purchased through the Creatives Against Covid 19 website, with all funds donated equally between ISPCC Childline and Women’s Aid. Posters are A3 and are made to order, printed by Hen’s Teeth. They are printed on gallery quality, fine art archival paper using giclée printing.
